When an age-old artform meets unadulterated precious metal the results are pure gold. The fires on the tiny Venetian island of Murano have been burning since the year 1291, producing timelessly beautiful pieces using techniques that the rest of the world can only guess at.
The creator of our 24K Gold Murano Glass Collection, Manuela Zanvettori, comes from a family who has been creating artistic glass in Murano, Venice for over half a century. Manuela grew up seeing her mother make glass jewels, threading thousands of beads and creating beautiful pieces. Today, Manuela has taken the traditional craft of Murano glass and continually reinvents it to create gorgeous pieces that are “au courant.”
Manuela has handmade glass rings and then filled them with 24K gold leaf. Not to be confused with gold foil which has plastic mixed in, this is the most pristine form of gold available, coming it at 99.99% pure.
With this collection, you’re not only getting handcrafted jewelry from one of the best Murano glass artisans in the world, you’re getting one-of-kind wearable art filled with pure gold. And, because we strive to make the extraordinary affordable, you can bring home this collection without paying a fortune.
